Collie Ninja Oscar shines bright at NCL Finals in Melbourne
Collie PCYC’s very own Ninja Warrior, Oscar, flew to Melbourne to showcase his skills and determination at the Ninja Challenge League Finals.
The trip began with some pre-training at Ninja Parc where Oscar fearlessly tackled obstacles he had only ever seen on TV.
Coach Kristy praised Oscar for the way he slowed down and meticulously planned his approach before tackling each obstacle – this same tactic helped him conquer many new obstacles throughout the competition.
Oscar’s mastery of a ‘lock hold’ for the first-time left onlookers impressed. He smoothly navigated the peg slider obstacle, which proved too tough for many.
Even after his official run in the competition concluded, Oscar continued giving every obstacle his best, loving the experience.
His support crew, along with the event commentators, applauded Oscar for his performance in his first NCL finals. Oscar’s entry into the finals, securing the 6th rank in the state within his age category, stands as a testament to his achievement.
Over the weekend Oscar also enjoyed sightseeing around Melbourne including Olinda Falls, SkyHigh Lookout and his personal favourite, the Old Melbourne Gaol. His interest in the gaol was sparked by learning about the infamous outlaw Ned Kelly at school.
We are extremely proud of Oscar for his achievements. We extend heartfelt gratitude to the Department of Communities and the wider Collie Community for their support making Oscar's journey possible.
